The 87 poems included in the first (1956) edition of The Improved Binoculars were selected from the eight volumes the poet published in the first ten years of his career. The publication of the book -- simultaneously by The Ryerson Press (Canada), Migrant Books (England), and Jonathan Williams ( US ) -- did much to establish Layton as a major talent on the international poetry scene and prompted Robert Creeley to note: `Irving Layton may well be for the historian of Literature ... the First Great Canadian Poet.''What a pleasure to rediscover `The Bull Calf'', `The Cold Green Element'', `The Birth of Tragedy'' and `To the Girls of my Graduating Class'' and discover these poems are as vital as the day they were written.

Whistle for Jellyfish is a poetry collection written by six award-winning poets - Sylvia Adams, Brock Currie, Gill Foss, Glenn Kletke, Barbara Myers, and Margaret Malloch Zielinski. Their decision to write a collection of travel poems was based on a desire to share experiences in a way that would preserve their distinctive voices and relate all aspects of travel, from anticipation and pleasure through deterrents, hardships and imbroglios to revelations and the varied features - elegiac, eulogistic or reflective - of journey. With disparate histories and viewpoints, the collection comes together as a journey itself, as an organic whole with implied narrative.

These are narrative poems that resonate with the simplicity of rural life but evolve from the great traditions of Emerson, Thoreau, and have the emotional connections of the poetic works of Patrick Friesen and Glen Sorestad. The poems reflect how the lands, the climate, cattle, coyotes and weather unfold with circadian rhythm. Her language is straightforward and yet she creates fresh and useful metaphors to embody those mystical connections that are entrenched between her and the rural world she inhabits.

Riot Lung is a well-balanced introduction to a new voice. Horlick''s poems vibrate with spontaneity and yet retain an intimacy that is emotionally intoxicating. Whether reflecting on her coming of age moments within her family, or measuring the impact of both the rural and urban prairie landscapes on her life, Horlick never strays far from how her identity as a queer writer has been shaped.

These riddlu are a lighthearted but heartfelt attempt to combine two poetic forms that demand extreme concision and that value the suggestive power of metaphor: the riddle and the haiku. ... Both have different strengths - the quick thinking of the riddle (a lifesaver for Bilbo Baggins), the serious looking of the haiku. My riddlu tries to lighten the haiku''s seriousness while lending some of its intuitive weight to the riddle, producing little triads of lines that glance across metaphorical waters like skipped stones.

Native Poetry in Canada: A Contemporary Anthology is the only collection of its kind. It brings together the poetry of many authors whose work has not previously been published in book form alongside that of critically-acclaimed poets, thus offering a record of Native cultural revival as it emerged through poetry from the 1960s to the present. The poets included here adapt English oratory and, above all, a sense of play. Native Poetry in Canada suggests both a history of struggle to be heard and the wealth of Native cultures in Canada today.

For Irish-born poet and zookeeper Eric Cole, the fourteen lines and rhythmic patterns of the sonnet echo the very building blocks of life. Within the basic structure of simple genetic material lies the limitless potential for the existence of all living things, be they man or beast. So, too, within the simple structure of the sonnet, there is a similar universe of untold possibilities. Now, in these robust and stylish poems, the mysteries of the animal kingdom are explored with genuine scientific curiosity and rendered with tenderness, stimulating language and unmistakable Irish wit. From the reviled Portuguese man o'' war to the glorious hyacinth macaw, from the elusive snow leopard to the bizarre pangolin and even to the human animal itself, Cole demonstrates how life exists in inexplicable but nonetheless indispensable variety. This collection serves to remind us what we stand to lose if we fail to appreciate the small states of grace that befall us in the disappearing natural wonders of our world.
